There's a typo that may cause mysqlbackup to fail to free some memory in some situations.

In the file innobackup.c at the end of the function copy_incremental_to_full_backup():

  if (full_backup_db_dirp)

should be:

  if (full_backup_db_dirp)

How to repeat:
Please read the source code of mysqlbackup.
